Reviews on Tamiya TNX,

and the Serpent 710.
This months premiere issue showcases "Static X" which is a rock band that is addicted to RC.

here was one of the questions and answers..what do you think
(from Page 24)
Need a Plug
Q: I want to buy the best glow plugs for my nitro truck, but every time I ask a different person, I get a defferent answer....Which type of plug should I run in my 1/10th scale gas truck?
A: We have found that small-block engines typically run better and are easier to tune with hot plugs. Cold plugs often cause the combustion to happen too late in the cycle, and that results in a loss of power and finicky low-speed needle settings. Start with the hottest plugs first, and if you go through them fasat, go to the next colder plug. Cold plugs are a little more durable than hot plugs, but at the cost of power and finicky needle settings, the difference just isnt worth it. Plugs such as the McCoy MC059, O.S. LC3 and Fox hot plug will work fine in your engine. -JASON
